The Ungifuni Shweshwe Serviettes Black are black in colour with a white flower pattern. Ungifuni means “wish me not” in Zulu. Made in South Africa exclusively for The African Artisan. This is a limited-edition range of Shweshwe table linen. The range consist of table runners, placemats and serviettes. One can use together with any of our bowls or the other linen from the Ungifuni Shweshwe Serviettes Black. For gifting ideas pair together with our Rima bowls and platters. Instead of flowers use serviettes to wrap cheeses or breads. Either way these lovely serviettes will bring joy to any occasion.
In the early 1900’s Xhosa women adopted Shweshwe material in the use of their traditional dress wear. Shweshwe has thus become an integral part of South African tribal dress tradition. Exclusively designed for The African Artisan this is a limited edition range of Shweshwe table linen. The Ungifuni Shweshwe range consists of table runners, placemats and serviettes.
Artisanally made each piece of our table linen range is handmade with the utmost love and care. As with all handmade products each piece of our Shweshwe range is unique. No two pieces will ever be the same. Most certainly, herein lies the true beauty of the handmade product, its perfect imperfections! Celebrate these as a testament to the love and hard work that go into making something so incredibly beautiful. Our handmade products are an alternative to mass produced design.
